The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 6/3/2014

Ryan Clements's Avatar Posted by on Jun 01, 2014 // Senior Specialist, SIEA Social Media

The Drop

Amidst the sound of shattered glass, Detective Ronan O’Connor falls to his death, his body crumpled on the pavement below the broken window. But this is only the beginning of his story in Murdered: Soul Suspect, which launches on PS4 and PS3 this week.

In Murdered: Soul Suspect, players take control of Ronan — a troubled detective with a messy past — moments after his own murder. Now as his spirit wanders through the purgatorial world of the Dusk, players must help Ronan harness his newfound supernatural abilities and solve the mystery behind his own untimely demise. But the town of Salem has a dark history as well, and answering Ronan’s questions won’t be easy — especially with hungry demons prowling the afterlife.

Murdered isn’t the only big new game on the block, however. War Thunder is also launching on PS4 this week, and PlayStation Vita Pets is coming to Vita for a more light-hearted gaming experience. You can never have too many puppies.

For a complete list of games coming to PlayStation on Tuesday, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

Can Aban survive the endless traps of Ukampa and surpass his famous father?
Heroine Dream

Heroine Dream places the player in the role of a producer working with the prospective heroine, Shizuka Maiki.

There are multiple endings depending on how the player raises Shizuka.
Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection

Neptune and her friends decide to summon a talented idol producer (you). Train them to become successful idols by taking them to PR events, raising their stats, and spending time with the idol of your choosing. But most importantly, put on some smashing concerts!
Murdered: Soul Suspect
PS4, PS3 — Digital, Retail
Most people think that death is the end, but for Ronan O’Connor, a Salem police detective with a chequered past, it’s just the beginning. When Ronan gets caught in a violent burglary, his life is brought to an untimely and brutal end. Shocked to find himself in the afterlife, his only escape from the limbo world of Dusk is to track down his killer using new-found supernatural abilities.

…your own ghost.

Ahhhh! GHOSTS! Looking forward to the PS+ stuff this week and E3 is just around the corner! Gonna try to catch it over in Manhattan, on the waiting list but would probably be worth the wait.

I was just wondering why we’re getting a sports game for the 2nd month in a row, don’t you think we should mix up genres? Knowing E3 is around the corner I expected some major titles for PS3, you guys are also going to take out Uncharted 3, NBA 2K14 is a different genre but it comes no where near Uncharted :/


+ Vyprstryke on June 1st, 2014 at 9:50 am said:

Really excited about Murdered!! Pulling for that as this years sleeper hit =) likely gonna check out 1001 Spikes as well if the price is right. Cool week for new games. Hope there’s some cool sales this week as well!

    Enjoy! I’m also excited for Murdered.

Man that Murdered: Soul Suspect release date really caught me by surprise. Between that and PS+ this month I won’t have much time to spare.

Hehe, Neptune looks soo happy…But my heart is with Noire, dammit!

IGN may have bashed it (I didn’t actually read their review but the few words they said at the Vita page pretty much told me that’s what they did, even though I knew of some of its shortcomings from those who’ve played the Japanese version), but I’m looking forward to the day my LE comes in teh mail!

BTW, is PSV Pets F2P or no?

    I don’t believe PlayStation Vita Pets is free-to-play. We’ll have more details on that game this week!

Keeping my eye on Neptunia and Worms.

Neptunia and Worms. Now that would be a game.

Only Neptunia PP for me this week, and that’s more than enough for me.

Wow! Something for everyone. I honestly wasn’t interest in MSS until I watched the video. It looks like it could be a sleeper hit! I’m also looking forward do getting my hands on the beautiful Pixel Junk Shooter. Outstanding Drop this week!

+ TeamGreen615 on June 1st, 2014 at 10:36 am said:

This is what I want for my Vita at E3. Grand Theft Auto SA Stories, Godeater 2 coming west, Syphon Filter (Sifer Philton for Ryan)
inFamous, Grand Turismo, Gravity Rush 2, and I guess while I’m dreaming a Crash Bandicoot Collection. Not getting my hopes up though.


+ Rezolution77 on June 1st, 2014 at 10:41 am said:

Hyperdimension Neptunia.

More interested in Birth, than the dance game PSP spinoff Perfection.

Not a Day1, but will be on the lookout for a digital sale.


+ Rezolution77 on June 1st, 2014 at 10:43 am said:

And Definately +1 @26 for Syphon Filter.

Need to at atleast make the old PSP versions available.


+ Dewbah86 on June 1st, 2014 at 10:52 am said:

Is it the full version of War Thunder or just the Beta that EU has had access to? As in is it more then just air combat?


+ The1337Ghost on June 1st, 2014 at 11:17 am said:

Cool. I totally didn’t expect Murdered Soul Suspect and War Thunder to be out already :D


+ Mando44646 on June 1st, 2014 at 11:18 am said:

Nothing for me this week. I might get Murdered SS after a price drop or two. And I don’t care for a Nintendogs knockoff on Vita


+ Jsfate on June 1st, 2014 at 11:22 am said:

Any word on the last of us due date being confirmed for June as listed in Facebook? yet, retail stores do not have this info yet?

Murdered: Soul Suspect is my most anticipated games o this year.


+ SeanStrange on June 1st, 2014 at 11:34 am said:

Murdered: Soul Suspect! Can’t wait to play it. I also feel really bad for the people that are going crazy over Hyperdimension Neptunia Idol PP. Little do they know, the game is absolute rubbish and is a total waste of money.


+ godshand3547 on June 1st, 2014 at 11:37 am said:

Its June already. Waahhhh, i thought i was gonna have a Vita by now.
I want Neptunia PP (ive heard the reviews and i dont care). Waaaaahhhhhh!!!!


+ AizawaYuuichi on June 1st, 2014 at 12:00 pm said:

Picking up Murdered: Soul Suspect to support Airtight Games and Square-Enix for making/financing a new IP, and to support the mid-tier A/AA game release. If you’re tired of only getting AAA or indie games, then you should support the mid-tier games as well. Just saying.


+ iREVOLTER on June 1st, 2014 at 12:08 pm said:

Looking to PS+ and E3 )


+ NinjaMicWZ on June 1st, 2014 at 12:19 pm said:

Does anyone know if the physical release of Playstation Vita Pets in the UK is an actual game card, or a download code in a box? Please let me know before it ships.

nice drop this week, War Thunder and Worms is mine! reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly ecstatic about E3! ill be heading to the theater in San Antonio to watch :) somehow i feel this will totally be worth it.

+ drewim469 on June 1st, 2014 at 1:57 pm said:

So nice to see more than one ps4 game out this week. I’ve been waiting for War Thunder since launch, MSS looks interesting, E3 around the corner, thing are looking good.


+ dkarlowicz10 on June 1st, 2014 at 1:58 pm said:

If PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is free for PS4 this month, does that mean also free for Vita since it is a crossbuy? If so, 4 free Vita games this month, wow.


+ Rezznak on June 1st, 2014 at 2:02 pm said:

Yes! 1001 spikes!!!!!!! Can’t wait to play another split-screen co-op game. I wonder if it really is as difficult as they say? Thank-you Sony, and Nicalis!!!!!!!


+ onearmlauren on June 1st, 2014 at 2:21 pm said:

Will 1001 Spikes and/or Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate be crossbuy?

+ yowzagabowza on June 1st, 2014 at 2:28 pm said:

Please put prices. This post is basicaly useless without them.

For peiple wondering, 1001 spikes is priced as stupidly as the rest of the ps4 indies at $15. I dont know why anyone would even bother buying ps4 games off psn considering plus is supposedto give us two a month sstarting in july.


+ djsaiyan on June 1st, 2014 at 2:41 pm said:

Decided to hold off on Murdered: Soul Suspect until the reviews come in. If it comes in at a decent enough score amongst my trusted reviewers, day one fo shooo


+ Husteen on June 1st, 2014 at 2:55 pm said:

yay, excited for soul suspect. also excited for trine 2, even though i’d rather own it, and pixel shooter for ps+.

just so i understand correctly, all 4 ps+ games will be available at the beginning of the month and will remain freebies until that months ends, right?


+ Mega-Sackman on June 1st, 2014 at 3:02 pm said:

War thunder, PixelJunk, Trine, and i’m still playing Watch Dogs… between this, E3, the World Cup, Destiny Beta, i surely have June/July Covered.


+ Gamerzlimited on June 1st, 2014 at 3:42 pm said:

The only game I look forward to this week is Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection. Can’t wait for my Limited Edition copy from the NIS America store to arrive later of the week. :)
